One of the easiest ways to keep your child happy and occupied this holiday season is to ask them to engage in line studies. This is a fun activity that helps bring out your toddler’s creative best and pique their interest.
Polar bear – themed art is perfect for winters when you can teach your children about the fascinating creatures and how they survive in the snow. You can achieve this with just the most basic art supplies that you probably already have lying around the house.
Why Line Drawing Is A Great Activity
While colouring is fun, line drawing actually takes it one step further by requiring your child to draw straight lines first, colour later. This greatly helps improve their focus and drawing skills.
Drawing straight lines can also prepare your toddler to learn how to write alphabets correctly when the time is right. Moreover, line drawing is easier than regular drawing so it won’t be too difficult for your toddler to enjoy this activity.
The joy of colouring in the lines your child drew by themselves will actually make this activity all the more rewarding for your child.
